ROBERT KNUTSON IS GRACIOUSLY hosting the opportunity to purchase a beautiful wall photograph  with all proceeds going directly to Shepherd of the Valley.  This amazing opportunity is one day only, Saturday, November 21, from 12:00 – 4:00pm.  Come to The Photo Gallery 7300 Yukon Drive, Unit 2 in Bismarck. 

It’s simple… 

  1. Buy a wall photograph
  2. Write the check to Shepherd of the Valley
  3. 100% of the cost goes to Shepherd as a donation. 

Thank you, Bob for your kind offer to help members support our congregation and take home a beautiful print.   

THE STORAGE SHED IS REALLY TAKING SHAPE!  Roof boards have been placed.   Much of the cost for materials on this project has not yet been covered.  You are invited to donate to this exciting project as Grayson Lawyer seeks to complete his Eagle Scout project in the coming weeks as he works with family members and members of his scout troop to finish the shed.

THE MISSOURI VALLEY CHAMBER ORCHESTRA concert scheduled for this afternoon has been postponed to a later date.  

THE MARTIN LUTHER SCHOOL FALL 2020 AUCTION is now open and will run through Sunday, November 8, at 2:00 pm.  You will have the opportunity to bid on donated crafts, artwork, toys, tools, sporting goods, gift cards, and more.  There may even be a few pies for auction.  You can also make direct donations.  Finally, you will be able to purchase t-shirts with the new “Lion” logo.  The shirts are great for MLS students, parents, grandparents, and all supporters.  The auction can be previewed at  Thanks for your support. 

THE FEAST OF ALL SAINTS took place on November 1.  Sine we were not offer “In-Person” service on that day, we did not have the opportunity to honor saints who have died in the Lord with our rose tribute.  During services on November 11 and 15, we will pause to remember and celebrate these loved ones with a parade of roses, honoring each person, one at a time.  Blessed be the memory of our loved ones who have died in the Lord.  Rest in peace.  Rise in glory!  

THE FALL VOTER’S MEETING will take place on Sunday, November 22nd at 9:30 during the education hour.  We will consider the 2021 budget and hear reports from leadership boards.  Plan to join us.  If you would like to join via the internet, please contact the church office.  

DUE TO COVID WE ARE USING single pre-packaged treats for fellowship . Donations of treats or money in basket is appreciated. It cost around $15 for treats and coffee each Sunday. Thanks! Any questions please contact Cathy Sitter or Pam Dever.
